The Chargers are set to release Dwight. Maybe the Falcons can bring him back, after trading him in part of the package that brought us Vick.

Although I still like Dwight a lot, I'd only go after him if we lose Allen Rossum, who should be a relatively hot commodity as well on the open market. Rossum and Dwight probably represent the top 2 return specialists on the market, and many teams will be in the market.

Of course if we lose Rossum, we can plug DeAngelo on punt returns and Jenkins on kickoffs. But I'm not sold on Jenkins as a return guy. I think we'll need to address that position if Rossum does leave. Maybe somone like Rod Smart or Dominic Rhodes who can also fill in as the #3 RB as well.

It's definitely an interesting thought...

It seems that others feel Dwight is a storng possibility here in Atlanta as well.

Not since the 2001 megadeal involving Michael Vick have the Atlanta Falcons and San Diego Chargers been involved together in a trade. That drought could be about to end. Well, sort of. The Chargers this week released veteran Tim Dwight, the kamikaze return man who actually began his NFL career with the Falcons in '98 and who, coincidentally, was a major component in the Vick deal. Despite an injury-plagued stint in San Diego, where he missed 17 games in four seasons and failed to develop into the full-time wide receiver the Chargers were convinced he could be, Dwight is still highly regarded in Atlanta. The special teams coach when he was drafted, Joe DeCamillis, still holds the same spot on the Atlanta staff. And, as it so happens, the Falcons might need a new return specialist since their Pro Bowl standout, Allen Rossum, is scheduled for unrestricted free agency and is seeking big dollars Atlanta might be unwilling to shell out. So where does the trade angle come in? Well, guess which player the Chargers are eyeing as a potential replacement for Dwight, the guy who tops their special teams wish list, according to several sources? Drum roll, please -- Allen Rossum, of course. Chargers officials are tentatively set to meet with Rossum's agent this weekend on general matters. Bet the mortgage Rossum's name is worked into the conversation. Should they lose Rossum to San Diego in free agency, or to any other team for that matter, look for the Falcons to vigorously pursue Dwight, a fan favorite during his previous three-year stint with the club.

It's interesting and I'm sure Timmy would love to come back. Just a matter of how much....

Looks like they resigned Rossem, so I doubt Dwight will be coming here now. I like Rossem more anyways.
